Regionally identified foods (Idaho potato, Napa Valley wine, Kona Coffee) are among the best-known, highest value products of the US. They enjoy a strong reputation for quality and have a large impact on rural economies. They offer variety of choice to consumers while preserving local traditions and cultural heritage. In many cases they enjoy thriving export trade with room to grow. However, they have been caught up in international trade negotiations and intellectual property debates that have hindered their development. This panel, organized by the New SchoolFood Studies program and the University of Arkansas Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, explores the market potential of these products, especially from the consumers’ point of view.

Speakers include Richard McCarthy, executive director of Slow Food U.S.A with others to be announced. Moderated by Dr. Elizabeth Barham, founder and director, American Origin Products Research Foundation.

Sponsored by The New School Food Studies Program, the University of Arkansas Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, and the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.
